07 January 2010


It started out innocently enough. I posted the following on Crackbook yesterday:

And thus begins PANTRY CLEAN-UP 2010! Wish me luck, people. I may get buried under ravioli and soup cans.

To which Brad Finn (a.k.a. Mr. Fabulous) replies:

Why do you keep canned goods in your panties?


From now on I am calling her Panty Cans.

To which I stupidly replied in a new status update:

According to @BEFinn, my new nickname is "Panty Cans." That is all.

After that? My fellow ghost hunter J-walk took off. Next think I know, he's got a Twitter account set up with a horrendous picture of me in my watermelon hat. And yep, you guessed it, the Twitter account is @PantyCans.

It was a lark. Or was it?

Cleaning out a pantry is all about getting rid of the old, expired canned goods, Hickory Farms gift packs (four-year-old beef sticks, people, somewhat resemble 80-year-old... never mind), and dried up brown sugar from a baking frenzy three Christmases ago, and getting organized. Let's face it, my pantry is a place I shove the green beans, diced tomatoes, and vanilla extract bottles willy-nilly, with no thought to organization at all. So, let's use @PantyCans to clean out our Twitter accounts. Send me your favorite tweets! Or send me an anonymous tweet you want to get off your chest and I'll post them all, no questions asked. Let's clean out our proverbial pantries and have some fun with it!

And yeah, that's J-walk in the profile picture. So, follow us or he'll swipe you with his super-special Anakin lightsaber.

Gad, we're such GOOBS!

You also use your panty as a place to shove the green beans, diced tomatoes, and vanilla extract bottles willy-nilly?

*Sniff* I thought I was the only one.

It feels good not to be all alone anymore. *Sniff*

So that's what I have to look forward to at 80, eh?


You DO realize, don't you, that many people, on first glance, are going to see that photo, and interpret that reflection on your lower lip and think it's a tooth. Possibly your one and only tooth. Or else you just fergot yer uppers. :>)
